i'm dave briggs. >> i'm christine romans. it is thursday, june 14th. happy 72nd birthday to the president. we start with mike pompeo on a nuke shuttle diplomacy mission. he will discuss north korea with president xi and other officials. he underscored north korea must denuclearization before easing of sanctions. he tried to ease concern about verification. >> sanctions relief cannot take place until such time as we have demonstrated north korea has been completely denuclearization. the summit created this enormous historic opportunity. for us to move forward together and fundamentally shape the relationship with the united states and north korea. verification is central to that. certainly denuclearization encompasses that idea clearly. >> pompeo pushing back against
1:02 am
criticism the joint declaration of kim jong-un and donald trump did not have the words verifiable or irreversible. trump said complete is in the statement and encompasses both terms. he said the omission is insulting and ludicrous. we turn to nic robertson in seoul. he went full thesaurus on that. >> reporter: yes. he expected this push back and he made it clear that what kim jong-un was signing up for. mike pompeo said complete covered it all and everyone in the room understood that. this is a new era for peace and he has the opportunity of the
1:03 am
face-to-face talks with mike pompeo. that it was good to get the details of the explanation of what happened in singapore. this eases concerns of the stopping of the military exercises. we heard south korea's foreign minister reference that. she says this is the issue with the united states and south korea. this is something that would require consultations between the two countries. not only now, but going forward as well. that was a clear line drawn there. to the issue we heard coming from the north koreans and their state media indicating there will be sanctions relief if the negotiations and dialogue goes well. no mention of denuclearization for sanctions to be lifted from the north korean. secretary of state mike pompeo making clear no relief until the denuclearization has happened.
1:04 am
the view from south korea is a good start and they want speed and they want the details as well. dave. >> okay. it is a good start. nic robertson live in seoul. thank you. president trump standing by his glowing praise for the summit partner kim jong-un in interviews. the president appeared to justify the brutal actions of the north korean regime. >> you know, you call people sometimes killers. he is a killer. he is executing. >> he is a tough guy. when you take over a country, a tough country. tough people. you take it over from your father. if you can do that at 27 years old, you -- that's 1 in 10,000 that could do that. he is a very smart guy. great negotiatonegotiator. i think we understand each other. >> but he has still done very bad things. >> yeah, but so have a lot of other people have done bad things. i can go through a lot of nations where a lot of bad
1:05 am
things have been done. the answer is yes. >> the comments of kim jong-un's actions echoing the rhetoric the president had used in the past to defend vladimir putin when the president said you think our country is so innocent. as president trump flew back home from the summit, his attention returned to the russia investigation. sources tell us he called his lawyers to talk about a potential showdown with robert mueller over the president's willingness to answer questions from the special counsel. the president's team is waiting to sit down to game out the next moves. tru trump's lawyers meet with mueller this week or next. cohmichael cohen may split h his team and possibly testify. rudy giuliani dismissed that claimed last night. >> it is not so. i checked into it last night. he is not cooperating.
1:06 am
the president did nothing wrong. we are comfortable if he cooperates. there is nothing he can cooperate about. >> now he found the right language. more from dana bash in washington. >> reporter: christine and dave, michael cohen realizes the legal jeopardy he is in requires a law firm or more than one law firm that has experience in the southern district of north korea whe -- southern district of new york. cohen spent much of the day meeting with lawyers and three law firms that fit the bill. my colleague said someone close to cohen says he is aware of the possibility he could be indicted. going to new york and having somebody with expertise there is one thing. the other reason he seems to be intent on switching law firms is money. he does not want to spend all of his savings on legal fees. i'm told he owes a lot to his
1:07 am
current lawyer and his firm. they dou-- they deployed severa lawyers to comb through documents. that has added up. this may play in concerns of michael cohen or people around the president are saying they have -- that cohen could flip. he could cooperate with investigators. i'm told they are not there yet. there hasn't been a specific conversation between prosecutors in new york and cohen or anybody in his orbit about the potential for a deal. dave and christine. >> dana, thank you. deputy attorney general rod rosenstein will brief president trump on the fbi handling of the hillary clinton e-mail probe prior to the 2016 election. this potentially explosive report from the justice department's inspector general will be made public later in the day. ahead of the release, jeff sessions said this.
1:08 am
>> i think it will help us better fix any problems we have and reassure the american people that some of the concerns that have been raised are not true. >> we get more from cnn's laura jarrett. >> reporter: good morning, dave and christine. this anticipated report from the internal watch dog at the justice department is expected to cover all of the key issues leading up to the 2016 election. everything from some of the more unusual moves from the former fbi director james comey. the public statements from the hillary clinton e-mail probe and the tarmac meeting between then attorney general loretta lynch and bill clinton. now donald trump, both on the campaign trail and as president, has called into question the legitimacy of the clinton e-mail investigation. suggesting that the fbi had it
1:09 am
rigged for clinton. somehow biassed in her favor. one of the key questions for the inspector general to look at is how do the motives of of the fbi impact the outcome of the investigation. whether he is more concerned with the process and whether they flouted department norms. dave and christine, back to you. >> all right. thank you. after the primaries on tuesday, no denying the gop is the party of trump. corey stewart senate nominee in virginia despite supporting a far right figure. last night on "cuomo primetime" he was asked about his support for paul naelin. >> you know, when you are losing the argument, you know what you do? you know what the left does? they play the race card. we have a president -- >> you don't think that applies to a person who has guided the
1:10 am
country? >> you never want to -- >> there is some on my side of the aisle. >> senator cory gardner tells cnn his committee does not plan to endorse stewart. in the meantime, mark sanford reflecting on his defeat in the gop primary for his seat. sanford is a notable critic of the president. he hopes his loss will not have a chilling effect on fellow republicans. >> i think it is important that we have vigorous dissent. it is never in my lifetime been so tied to an individual personality and a litmus test of are you compliant or on board with me as a person as opposed to are on you board with the ideals. >> that was earlier. retiring senator bob corker talked about being supportive of a person over policy.
1:11 am
>> we are in a strange place. you know, almost becoming a cult-ish thing, isn't it? >> a cultish thing. any doubt where the party stands. the tweet last night. complacency is our enemy. anyone that does not embrace the donald trump agenda of making america great again will be making a mistake. the trump administration gearing up for the next trade battle. planning to hit china with $50 billion in tariffs. officials plan to pursued, but still needs the president's final approval. experts want if north korea could give trump second thoughts. especially whether he wants pyongyang's help.
1:12 am
>> i think very strongly. you see over the next couple weeks with, they understand what you -- weeks, they understand what you can do. >> beijing will deny tariffs just ascanada. a response to the metal tariffs due to national security concerns. a fact canada's foreign minister calls absurd and hurtful. >> canada has truly more in sorrow than anger, announced a perfectly reciprical measured dollar for dollar retaliation expense. it may also be worth mentioning that in this action we are joined by our allies and allies of the united states, the eu and mexico. >> the tariffs are strategic targets home states of u.s. officials. the thing the president is upset
1:13 am
about aside from steel and aluminum. he started going after the dairy tariffs. the tpp countries managed to negotiate out the dairy tariffs. >> getting out of the tpp. one of the mistakes. ahead, a possible tornado left quite a mark in northeast pennsylvania overnight. a storm stretching over a mile wide collapsed buildings and flipped cars and left several injured. ncer ] duci wo asus, a next-generation, all-in-one work table and clamping system. ordinary work tables can't compete. pegasus has integrated clamps that hold materials tight at any angle. steel reinforcement makes pegasus superstrong. to prove it, we had pegasus support a car. sets up in seconds and folds flat for easy storage. strong. versatile. portable. a workspace anyplace. the worx pegasus.

1:24 am
2018 tournament kicks off today. over the next month, 64 matches will be played in 12 venues. let's bring in alex thomas live in moscow ahead of the world's biggest sports event. good morning, alex. >> reporter: dave, hello from central moscow. just as a group of fans outside red square are chanting australia, just some of the international visitors for the 2018 fifa world cup. 21st edition which dates back to 1930 kicks off later on thursday with the host nation russia taking on saudi arabia. not really a mouth watering one for soccer fans, it has to be said. these are the two lowest ranked teams in the tournament. russia trying to avoid the unwelcome record of the first host to lose. south africa did not get out of
1:25 am
their group. three million fans expected to come here and enjoy the atmosphere over the coming four and a half weeks. there will be a million from overseas. russia opening its arms despite the political controversy off the soccer pitch. this is about football. a big opening ceremony. half an hour before kickoff featuring robbie williams and opera star. that should be a raz-a-mataz day. dave. >> thank you, alex thomas live in moscow. how about this story? iq scores have been declining steadily for decades and a new study says environmental factors are to blame. iq scores of norwegian men have been studied and scores fell for
1:26 am
those born after 1975. similar in denmark and finland and estonia show similar trends. researchers have used genes to explain variations in intelligence. this points to environmental factors like changes in the education system and environment and nutrition and reading less and being online more. >> environment? >> being online. >> social media is not educating the masses. dodger stadium the scene of ba base-brawl. barrelling into the rangers catcher who stood in his way and the brawl is on. rangers and dodgers, both benches clear. the fracas is on. expect suspensions to come out of this one. the play at the plate looked legit. i don't think either of them should be punished for that.
1:27 am
you get another look at it. the catcher is clearly blocking the plate. you have to barrel into him to get through to it. it doesn't look like a lot of punches were thrown. certainly entertainment in l.a. the secretary of state selling the north korea agenda to allies overseas. verification is required to denuclearization. he is taking his pitch to seoul.
1:28 am
1:29 am
1:30 am
1:31 am
verification is central to that. complete denuclearization encompasses the idea. >> you won't read that in the agreement, but the secretary says verification is required for north korea to denuclearization. he says sanctions relief depends on it. the president's mind is back on the russia investigation. his lawyers set to speak with the investigators. the president to strategize. and a tornado tears through pennsylvania. buildings torn apart and power is out for thousands. tough night there in northeastern pennsylvania.
1:32 am
welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm dave briggs. half past the hour. happy birthday, mr. president. we start with mike pompeo on a nuke shuttle diplomacy mission. he will discuss north korea with president xi and other chinese officials. pompeo underscored north korea must denuclearization before easing of sanctions. he tried to ease concern about verification. >> sanctions relief cannot take place until such time as we have demonstrated north korea has been completely denuclearized. the summit created this enormous historic opportunity. for us to move forward together and fundamentally shape the relationship with the united states and north korea. verification is central to that. certainly denuclearization encompasses that idea clearly. >> pompeo pushing back against criticism the joint declaration
1:33 am
of kim jong-un and donald trump did not have the words verifiable or irreversible. pompeo insists that complete is in the statement and encompasses means verifiable and irreversible. he said the omission is insulting and ludicrous. he blasts reporters asking why that is not in the statement. for the latest, we turn to senior diplomatic editor nic robertson live in seoul. nic. >> reporter: christine, i want to share the information we are picking up that the north korean agency is picking up more information of kim jong-un in singapore. we are seeing more on the clip where trump takes kim jong-un to the presidential limousine.
1:34 am
the beast and opens the door and shows it to him. what we're being told by the north korean announcer over videos is this is president trump showing the chairman affection and respect. that's how that is being interpreted. of course, secretary of state mike pompeo is dialing back the perception that the north korean media is putting out to its people there could be sanctions relief if the negotiations and talks progress or as they progress as you have just said mike pompeo said not until there is complete denuclearization. the other issue that is here in south korea is the understanding of the stopping of the joint military exercises. the president here said we are entering a new era of opportunity. yes, we want to see all of the talks and the details on denuclearization. we want that to happen fast.
1:35 am
he did say and i think this underscores concern that south korea has at the moment it was happy to see the secretary of state to be able to talk with him face-to-face of the details of what happened in singapore. the foreign minister saying on her part that the joint military exercises this was a joint decision. this would have to be a joint decision between the united states and south korea. implying it could not be done unilaterally to stop the joint military exercises. not only for this case, but going forward as well. so secretary of state got a lot of work on his hands. not just here, but now off to china as well. >> nic, those are defensive readiness drills. the president of the united states using the language and perspective of the russians and north koreans and chinese. not necessarily our allies. nic, thank you.
1:36 am
president trump standing by his glowing praise for his summit partner kim jong-un in post summit interviews. the president appeared to justify the brutal actions of the regime. >> you know, you call people sometimes killer. he is a killer. he is clearly executing people. >> he's a tough guy. when you take over a country, tough country, tough people. you take it over from your father and if you can do that at 27 years old, that's 1 in 10,000 that could do that. he's a very smart guy. he's a great negotiator. i think we understand each other. >> but he still has done very bad things. >> yeah, but so have a lot of other people have done some bad things. i can go through a lot of nations where a lot of bad things have been done. >> the comments of kim jong-un's actions echoing the rhetoric and the president used in the past to defend russian leader
1:37 am
vladimir putin. as donald trump flew back home, his attention turned to the russia investigation. sources tell us he called his lawyers to talk about a potential showdown with robert mueller over the president's willingness to answer questions from the special counsel. the president's team is waiting to sit down to game out the next moves. trump's lawyers meet with mueller this week or next. michael cohen may split with his legal team and possibly suggests he may flip and testify. rudy giuliani dismissed that claimed last night. >> it is not so. i checked into it last night. he is not cooperating. the president did nothing wrong. we are comfortable if he cooperates. there is nothing he can cooperate about. >> more from dana bash in washington. >> reporter: christine and dave, michael cohen realizes the legal jeopardy he is in requires a law firm or more than one law firm
1:38 am
that has experience in the southern district of new york where he is being investigated. i'm told that cohen spent much of the day on wednesday meeting with potential lawyers. at least three law firms that fit the bill. the question is why now? my colleague was told by someone close to cohen he is aware of the real possibility that he could be indicted. so going to new york and having somebody with expertise there is one thing. the other reason he seems to be intent on switching law firms is money. he does not want to spend all of his savings on legal fees. i'm told he owes a lot to his current lawyer and his firm. they deployed seven or eight lawyers to spent countless hours going through millions of documents for cohen and those legal fees added up. financial pressure may play into concerns that people around cohen or people around the president are saying they
1:39 am
have -- that cohen to flip. he could cooperate with investigators. i'm told they are not there yet and there hasn't been a specific conversation between prosecutors in new york and cohen or anybody in his orbit about the potential for a deal. dave and christine. >> dana bash, thank you. after the primaries on tuesday, no denying the gop is the party of trump. corey stewart senate nominee in virginia winning despite supporting a far right figure. last night on "cuomo primetime" he was asked about his support for paul naelin. >> you know, when you are losing the argument, you know what you do? you know what the left does? they play the race card. we have a president -- >> you don't think that applies
1:40 am
to a person who has guided the country? >> you never want to -- never want to condemn the extremism on your side of the aisle. >> there is some on my side of the aisle. >> senator cory gardner tells cnn his committee does not plan to endorse stewart. in the meantime, mark sanford reflecting on his defeat in the gop primary for his seat. sanford is a notable critic of the president. he hopes his loss will not have a chilling effect on fellow republicans. >> i think it is important that we have vigorous dissent. it is never in my lifetime been so tied to an individual personality and a litmus test of are you compliant or on board with me as a person as opposed to are on you board with the ideals this party is based upon.

1:42 am
unemployment is low and fed chief powell says this move will only help. >> we think gradually returning interest rates to a more normal level is the best way the fed can help sustain an environment in which american households and businesses can thrive. >> translation, the economy is strong enough to withstand higher borrowing costs without choking off growth. that means higher rates on auto loans and credit cards. higher borrowing costs could eat into corporate profits. powell will hold news conferences after every meeting. it is every other meeting right now. this may mean the fed will raise rates frequently in 2019. when i first started covering the fed -- sorry to all fed reporters. it is nerdy. you had to watch the markets to see how official interest rates
1:43 am
rose. they did not tell you what they did with rates. now a press conference every meeting. >> bacon and fed press conferences. >> those are things i love. straight ahead, a possible tornado left quite a mark in pennsylvania overnight. a storm stretching between a mile wide which flipped cars and left several injured. anth the detail of other tests... ...it can show dad where he's from ...and strengthen the bonds you share. give dad ancestrydna for just $69- our lowest father's day price ever.
